Robinho mocks Man City ambitions of becoming bigger than Man Utd

Robinho has slammed the ambitions of Manchester City in attempts to be bigger than Manchester United.

The Brazilian mocked City's ambitions of becoming a bigger club than their Old Trafford neighbours as well as castigating the Manchester weather.

He told the People: "When I arrived, the directors at City told me that, in a couple of years, we would overtake United, but the time has passed and nothing has changed.

"Manchester is a sensational venue for football but an awful place to live...the winter, the cold and the dark nights. It's very hard for a young Brazilian.

"The Premier League is one of the best in the world, without a doubt.

"The stadiums are always full and the atmosphere is incredible.

"But not every footballer is able to play in England. The character can be difficult for a foreigner."
